Sound Logic?

I took Logic in college. Frankly, I didn’t enjoy it. At all. Probably because my logic doesn’t always follow the if-then rules.

I’m afraid I may have passed this faulty reasoning process onto my children.

Tonight Jacob said, “are boys girls?”

I responded, “No. Boys are boys and girls are girls”.

He then said, “but some boys wear dresses and wear pink shoes?”

I countered, “yes, some boys wear pink shoes”.

At which point he said, “So. Boys ARE girls”.

Um no.

I guess I have some explaining to do.

    Haha. So funny.
    We have recently been discussing these types of things in our house too. My girls seem to think boys are not allowed to have long hair. LOL

    We haven’t even gotten to pink dresses yet 🙂

    How funny!!! My kids saw some dude with a mini skirt and heals on and Emma looks at me and says, “That’s just not RIGHT!” Cracks me up!

    Yeah, we had to have this discussion during Project Runway, of all things. They had a challenge that involved designing dresses for drag queens. At first my son (age 11) was a little freaked out, but then he just thought it was funny! I’ve probably scarred him for life, but what the heck! He’s got to have something interesting to talk to his therapist about.
